The moonshine is always flowing at P'cheen. Bartenders at this local bistro create seasonal cocktails from a selection of 10 or more moonshines, with flavors that include cherry, apple pie, and black tea. They also serve a full list of classic cocktails, such as the speakeasy old fashioned—a mix of bourbon, angostura + orange bitters—and craft beers. In the kitchen, chef Alex prepares a menu of international fusion dishes that complement the throwback libations. His specialties change with the season, since he sources many of his ingredients locally, but may include gazpacho made with local veggies, Guinness-battered fish and chips, and braised short ribs. Brunch is a favorite among regulars, with bottomless mimosas and a good mix of breakfast and lunch foods.

The Masquerade, which occupies a turn-of-the-century mill building, is one of Atlanta's most notable nightbash spots. Lick the last drops from the ice-cream cone of summer at the Endless Summer Music Fest, a festival of food, fun, and frolicking held on four stages. More than 24 bands of every genre, be it rock, pop, or rock, will jam and jive in an attempt to make summer's sweetness never fade, unlike photographs of Pat Boone's childhood hamster. The festival will offer deals on Pabst Blue Ribbon before 6 p.m., and this Groupon includes the cost of a plate piled high with barbecue eats from The Masquerade's back patio. If the beats or bites get too hot, cool off in an on-site dunking booth or bring your own liquid-nitrogen smoothie.
